This is my new favorite video. This was taken at the 2016 Hot Dog USA Bi annual jump rope show. Amazing camera work and editing by Nakean Photography. They did an incredible job of capturing the beauty of our sport. I love watching jump rope in slow motion. It allows you to see everything that is going on that you might miss at full speed. Watch it in full screen if you can. The final slow mo shot of the grand central station in double dutch is simply mind blowing. Great job to everyone involved in making this video!
Look out everyone! Jump Rope is in the spotlight on the national stage thanks to a group of USA Jump Rope All Stars. A crew called Saltare has made it on season 5 of America’s Best Dance Crew on MTV. If you follow jump rope, you already know their names… Chaz Robinson, Tyler Perez, Lee Reisig, Billy Jackson, Lisa Brown, & Brittany Fortier. What an amazing collection of talent!
I just watched the east regionals in which Saltare debuted on national TV. Saltare absolutely killed it! They nailed their routine without a flaw, got the entire audience on their feet, and left the judges in awe. The judges were unanimous in their praise of the crew’s talent. When it was time to select which crews would advance, Saltare was the first crew to be chosen to advance to the next round.
Here is an in interview with the crew backstage during the taping of the season 5 regional.
Good luck Saltare! The entire Jump Rope community is behind you. We hope you go all the way!
